So I'm looking for recommendations and an idea of prices for moves from Sydney to Gympie. I think my mother has grossly over estimated but want to show her some idea. it's for 2 adults/1 Kid & 4 Bedrooms with a fair bit of sensitive freight (4 computers, several antiques and sewing machines)

I've moved interstate a few times. We used Grace removalists each time and were happy with them. It's hard to give a price estimate as it does vary depending on what you have, if you provide your own boxes, if you want them to pack etc. We've never paid less than $1500 though. The best thing to do would be to get some obligation free quotes. Good luck with the move! :-)

We moved contents of a 4 bed house from Canberra to Gold Coast for about $2000 because we had our own boxes and packed it ourselves. They just put it on the truck and drove it up then unloaded boxes.

How ling before the move should we get quotes? I've only ever had a 2 week time to book,pack,move etc. I've already started packing but we won't be moving till January at least.

I moved from Vic to tassie and it was $5000 all up. We packed the house ourselves and the container then they shipped it over, that included us traveling over too

I'd get them sooner rather than later. It's a busy time of year so some companies mightn't have capacity. Plus it will give you time to shop around.
We moved Townsville to Canberra about 10 years ago and it was $10kish. Then Canberra to Sydney about 4 years ago and it was $6.5k. We had quite a bit of delicate stuff and those prices included a packing service. It's worth noting that most - if not all - companies won't cover breakages for stuff they haven't packed themselves.

My number one tip is to number each box and do a spreadsheet with what is in each number. Saves so much time when you're looking for things. Also write your surname and phone number on each box so they're not confused with anyone else's they're transporting

I used a company on the Gold Coast when moving from Bris down to NSW... not sure they went as far north as gympie and can't remember their name anyway, so not very helpful sorry.
There are sites that will let you enter your details and give you multiple quotes from different companies. I actually used one of these to find the company i used. It only cost me about $700 to move almost 800kms. As mention in a pp, my contents insurance covered everything while it was in transit so i didn't have to fork out more for that.

I would think about 9k for a Grace type removal company
